420 Marin Boulevard
Developers Break Ground on 60-Story Mixed-Use Tower in Jersey City
Joint developers, G&S Investors, and Brookfield Properties have held a groundbreaking ceremony to kick off construction for a massive, 60-story, mixed-use tower project, at 420 Marin Boulevard, in Jersey City.
Tenant amenities are to include a fitness center, a rooftop garden, a swimming pool, tenant lounges, a children's playroom, and a dedicated event space.
In addition to residential units, the structure will offer a large amount of retail space. Spanning square feet, this portion will feature a number of big-box and local retailers at ground level, as well as an 85,000-square-foot, ShopRite supermarket, on the 2nd floor.
Plans further call for an enclosed, 3-story parking garage, with enough room for vehicles, as well as a separate storage area that will be capable of holding 422 bicycles. These spaces will be located above the retail units on floors 3-5.
The project site spans square feet and was formerly used as a parking lot for the current Shop Rite location across the street, and a medium-sized box store that occupied the northwest corner of the property. Now that construction is underway, the parking lot has been transformed into dirt, and the box store in the corner has already been demolished. While it's not yet clear when we can expect the build to complete, we do know that 420 Marin Boulevard will become the 5th tallest building in all of Jersey City, provided that no other projects beat it to the chase beforehand.
